government, everything, everything, post office, roads, transportation, justice, education, energy, defense, everything else is about $1 trillion. you all just heard what the deficit was last year. $1.3 trillion. which means we can do away with the entire federal government with the exception of medicare, medicaid and social security and we wouldn't even balance the budget. that's the magnitude of the challenge that we have. so it's incumbent upon us to come up with solutions, positive solutions. so what are we trying to do on the house republican side? our goals as we step back and look and try to focus on what the goals ought to be are to increase economic freedom, to provide economic greater opportunity for individuals, to balance the budget within a 10-year period of time so that we can create that economic vitality in this country and create jobs and pass off that wonderful great land of opportunity to our kids and our grandkids so that their dreams can be realized and not stifled. along those lines we've laid out a three to four honor month strategy that started a couple weeks ago whe

security of our coming generations. it is how we figure out clean forms of energy, make medical advances that save lives, and ultimately reduce the cost of health care. develop the technologies that defend our country and make our fighting men and women safer and advance our economy. more than half, more than half of economic growth in this country since world war ii has resulted from technological advances. none of which would have been impossible or almost none of which would have been possible without the basic research funded by the federal government. sometimes this sounds very theoretical, but we live in it every day. let me hold up for you this morning this fetching little iphone. cannot get along without this thing. you all have one in your pocket. or perhaps you're looking at it right now and not listening to me. [laughter] which is pretty standard for us professors, so it is not surprising. this device that you have is in your pocket, and i have in mind, when not exist were it not for federally funded research. let me show you why. the gps that enables your device to guide you

the president thinks he can take. i do not think he has the ability to impose a national energy tax on americans without the authority of congress .arrie he may attempt to do this. >> what do you think about the plan to include in operations bill? >> there are a lot of options for how we move continuing resolutions. no decisions have been made about how to do that. thank you. >> what did you get mrs. boehner for valentine's day? >> good afternoon. we are on the floor about the legislation that affects -- we are running a few minutes late. this week on capitol hill we had the tail of two priorities. democrats want solutions, republicans want sequesters. democrats stand with the president's call for a balanced approach to create jobs, strengthen the middle class, grow the economy, and responsibly reduce the deficit. the publicans prefer delay and across the board cuts that are harmful. the education of our children, security of our country. on monday, i sent a letter to speaker boehner. the question i asked was, how can we leave for recess when we are so close to the sequester and we are so close

, we need to move away from that failed north korean policy to one with energy and creativity and focus, and i think we need to learn from what worked in the past until unfortunately those sanctions were lifted shortly after they were deployed because of the protests from north korea. so let's tackle north korea's illicit activities, its missile and drug proliferation where between that and its counterfeit currency program, that's how it gets close to 50% of its hard currency. this regime will do anything for money, obviously, as south koreans will tell you, it's a gangster regime. but let's interview with those shipments. let's disrupt the bank accounts that is used. let's ramp up the radio broadcasts into the country where there is evidence the information wall is cracking. 37% of those people that flee the regime today say they're listening to broadcasts or they're accessing information that is telling them about what's happening in the outside world and what's really going on in their own country. and that's the kind of information we have to get into this regime. and let's help the

? >> roughly, yes. >> and there's a lot of rhetorical energy spent around this building, appropriately so, making the point that we want to make sure we keep our commitments to those who have invested through a lifetime of social security and medicare. certainly a commitment i intend to keep. i know of no one on either side of the aisle who believes any differently. if you saw that number and saw that we were going to increase by 40% by 2023, but you also knew that we were going to increase our work force by 40%, by 2023, so that you had the same number of taxpayers putting -- footing the bill for those benefits, or at least per recipient, then you wouldn't be neerm as alarmed by that number as you might be in a scenario that's far different. so i was hoping you could comment just a minute about maybe the historical trend of how many taxpayers we've had per recipient in those programs and where we're going in that same trend. >> yes, congressman. so, we project that the labor force will grow much more slowly in the coming decade than it has grown over the past several decades. and there a

. energy, he'll talk about infrastructure, which is new, new roads, new bridge, stuff like that, manufacturing -- manufacturing, and then he'll also talk about education and making college more affordable. but all of that will be in the context of how can we make our economy grow stronger, how with can -- how can we promote and grow the middle class. host: here's the headline of the financial times d this morning. obama to focus attention on the economy. speech to be heavy on home initiatives. how much of this will echo what we heard at the inaugural address? guest: i think it will be a little bit different from that. i think there were a lot of comments after the inaugural address that he was aggressive on social issues. he talked about gay rights, equal pay for women, voting rights, and i think you'll see some of that but my sense is that you'll see only the things that sort of can come into an economic context. so while he might talk about immigration, what we need to do as a country on that, it will be in the vein of how does that help the economy? host: how significant is t

and mapping it to understand that when i like clean energy on facebook and i tweet out something about green energy, that is a same interest of mine. >> are different companies go to do it differently, is this something that everyone will have to move in the same direction on? you have to understand what the ontology of entities is. how are things name, how are they organized into hierarchies? for example, you need to know that wisconsin is a state and that there are cities inside of it. if i say i like wisconsin there are a whole bunch of interest that passed it off of that. he need to understand that hierarchy of objects. you also need to understand how they relate to each other. >> does this personalization become complementary to search, does that create a new paradigm? the most recent thing that any of the large internet companies have come out with is this social search that facebook has introduced. it is that a stepping stone? >> there is the social graph. what i am talking about, it will give way to the interest graph. you know this set of things i am interested in, you know the othe

change, energy, transportation, medicare, social security, defense spending, immigration reform, gun violence, and even our postal system. we need to find that urgency to start to create a sensible energy policy that confronts climate change and reduces our reliance on foreign oil. we need that urgency to formulate a transportation plan so that states can address their crumbling infrastructure. and local businesses can get back to work. we need that urgency of now to reconfigure our security policy. make sensible cuts and fashion a force that prepares us for conflicts of the future and not the past. we need the urgency of now to make sensible changes to social security and medicare to ensure the vitality of these programs for generations to come. batered -- it will reward us with a more sensible energy policy, good roads, and a sustainable social welfare system. we will be rewarded with the stable economy and reduced market volatility. we cannot wait to act. we are borrowing 42 cents for every dollar we spend. we have to take sensible steps to begin reducing our debt without stepping

enforcement officer said very recently, the energy in an assault weapon bullet will tear open a brick wall. you don't need that to go hunting. you don't need that to protect yourself and your home. i yield to the gentlelady from new york, carolyn maloney. mrs. maloney: i would like to yield to my inspiration in so many ways, we share the same name. carolyn mccarthy, on this issue from new york, she is our spokesperson. miss mccarthy: i want to thank my -- mrs. mccarthy: i want to thank my colleagues for having this hour and break up some of the myths out there on what we are hearing, not only in the papers but certainly from so many n.r.a. members. i have been battling this, many of us have been battling this issue for many, many years. i think that what happened just about two months today the newtown shooting happened. and that went through everybody's heart. to think in this day and age that we could have a shooting that totally rips apart 20 children. unacceptable to the american people. unacceptable to the american people. since that, being that we are trying to give as much informati

, energy, infrastructure, but that is where the future lies. i would like to respond to our colleagues from the uk. we have a lot of history behind us. and i will not say anything about the support you should have given to mr. deval, general the ball at that time. ul,given to mr. gega general degaul at that time. but i sometimes agree with mr. cameron is the party give us in our deployment tamale, he was the first to be so and he was the first to offer material support in our deployment to ma li. so i will not be so crude as to make a caricature of a country where political leader. i thank the u.k. and i also note that david cameron supports marriage for all, and that ain't -- that makes things easier for us in france as well. let me reply on the major issues affecting europe, and the questions put to me. young people, our continent is getting older. the birth rate is low. certainly, in sufficient. -- not sufficient. our policies, our choices call into question the role of young people in our society. if there's one thing that is worth our coming together, preparing the budget and the rest,

. what can he get passed in the united states senate? the president wants to propose an energy tax. the president wants more stimulus spending, there will be no -- doesn't create jobs. i would expect the united states senate to go ahead and take it up. if the president wants more tax hikes that destroy jobs, then as democrat allies in the senate ought to take it up. this isn't the agenda that many americans are looking for, and i think many in the president's own party won't support those ideas. in the house we're going to continue to focus on what the american people's top priorities are -- creating jobs and cutting spending. for the last two years the house has done its work. we've passed legislation to tackle the tough challenges that america faces only to see our senate colleagues do nothing. well, those days are over. the house will continue to meet other obligations, but senate democrats must begin to do their work. that's why we passed the no budget no pay act, requiring the senate to pass a budget for the first time in four years. and that's why we're going to insist that t

a few examples, nine or 10 months ago the department of energy built about 12 new buildings over here on the mall across from the neverson memorial for a solar exhibit. it stayed there for about 10 months and was torn down. no one really knows how much did that cost. . each year we give grants to other countries, including china, to help them with their environmental problems at a time when we have to borrow money from china to meet our obligations. and then as mr. jones mentioned earlier, in afghanistan we're spending $28 million a day. so i think it would be beneficial to the american people to prepare an annual declaration of the national debt to be made available to the congress and the public. this would show the american people how much we owed last year, how much we owe this year and what the projected debt is for the future. i will tell you that we have over -- the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman's time has expired. mr. whitfield: well, my time has expired. thank you. the speaker pro tempore: the chair recognizes the gentleman from maryland, mr. hoyer, for five minutes. mr.
